Hi, my husband and I are coming to New York to celebrate my 40th. Our first trip without our 3 kids and my first ever visit to America. It's a lifetime ambition to visit so the stakes are high!
I have a hitlist of what I want to see (MOMA, Met, Central Park, Frick) and good food & classic New York dining experiences are also
Important to me - and cocktails too!
So after all that my question is where should we stay. A friend recommended the Meatpacking district for the restaurants but the reviews on here of the Standard etc sound like a night club with rooms. We're tempted by the luxury of some midtown hotels (the Langham) but worry that we'd be in the wrong location for a choice of restaurants & a neighbourhood vibe.
It's unlikely we'll be doing this again - at least until my 50th - we want to get it right. We're staying for 3 nights so are wanting to cram the experiences in! Any advice appreciated.
